The Goat team consists of multinational, multilingual staff and local experts who have worked across 70 countries and delivered in more than 28 different languages.
We typically work to a four-week lead time, but ultimately this will depend on the nature of the campaign.
We have developed a number of bespoke hygiene screening tools and conduct a thorough, manual investigation into each influencer and their feed, going back as far as two years in order to properly assess the influencer’s eligibility and suitability for a campaign.
Once the hygiene screening is complete and confirmed, Goat staff will produce an extensive cross section of potential influencers and share them with the client for approval. This allows the client to see the planned direction for influencer selection and gauge an idea of the variety that is likely to be used.
Once signed off, the team can begin contacting and contracting influencers, providing a detailed brief, as well as guidance, where necessary.
The vetting process also extends to all content, which is thoroughly checked and considered before anything is published.
The designated teams will vary based on the nature of the campaign, however, a typical client team would consist of one account director, one campaign director, multiple supporting campaign executives, one strategist and a paid social manager.
Goat offers a combination of specialized industry expertise on a global scale that enables us to dedicate the appropriate time, resource and people to each of our clients. Our unbiased and neutral influencer selection and vetting process sets us apart from talent management agencies and our data-driven insights, paired with our human-centric approach, gives each client the personalized experience they deserve.
Goat can offer specialized expertise, real human relationship management and bespoke, creative, end-to-end influencer campaigns that drive authentic brand conversation, whilst also integrating targeted paid media to reach the right audience and achieve industry-leading results. It’s this combination of services that mean we are undoubtedly a more rounded, experienced, efficient and effective solution compared to any in-house team.
Platforms have limited expertise as they are often self serviced. Additionally, a lack of human touch affects the client and influencer relationship and makes it harder to carry out bespoke ways of working and reporting. Our personalized approach leads to more impactful campaigns and includes a variety of services you wouldn’t get using a platform. These include: personal relationships, creative & strategic solutions, crisis management, paid media management, qualitative insights and manual optimisation.
Eight years of unique data and insights from over 2,000 campaigns delivered all over the world, external research and local market insights inform each of our decisions. During the proposal building stage, both our insights and strategy teams spend time researching your brand and understanding both existing and new target audiences. Through this knowledge, and an understanding of the business and marketing objectives, we can develop a bespoke, authentic and engaging, social-first, influencer-led creative strategy.
To find the perfect influencers for our clients, we predominantly use our internal CRM tool, which incorporates the data of over 100,000 influencers. This extensive database houses key information, metrics and KPIs for every single influencer within it, allowing us to hone in on the most granular detail to guide our decision making. This detail, combined with the unparalleled knowledge within our team, allows us to see far beyond vanity metrics, enabling us to register the true value of each influencer.
In addition to using influencers, we have previous campaign performance data on, our insights team are constantly looking to source the most appropriate and relevant talent for the strategy we have.
